~ Everyone Needs a Few New Ornaments ~

Good morning and welcome to my weekly look back at new products from Our Daily Bread Designs'.  This week, I have a card featuring a few items from the October release including the Card Greetings stamp set,  Double Stitched Rounded Rectangles, Rounded Rectangles Die, Ornament Branch Die and Pine Branches Die.


I started with a white card stock base, created using the Rounded Rectangles Die.  I nested the next layer (ODBD's Christmas Paper Collection 2014) after cutting and embossing with the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I chose this lovely scripture from the book on Luke, featured in the Card Greetings stamp set, stamping it on white card stock with a rich green ink.  I cut, embossed and inked this panel using an old favorite in my ODBD collection, Vintage Labels Die.  The new Ornament Branch Die lends itself well to shadowing.  For this project, I cut my die out first in white CS and then a layer of silver poster board.  I offset them to give a silver "shadow."  I also cut another image out in green and carefully trimmed it to fit the top branch.  The die cut ribbon (also done in silver) can be found in the Circle Ornaments die set.  I chose two shades of brown card stock to create the itty bitty Pine Cones Die.  I distressed the DP layer with a bit of white, pumice and sky shades and for a final touch added a few flat backed silver beads.  

So here are a few of the new items you see on this project...





and a few old favorites...







Thank you for visiting and as always, happy crafting!
